It would be nice for useful unicode support APIs to *not* be in
glibc, but rather in a highly portable unicode support library.
Contrary to what many seem to think, there are actually people
who have good reasons to use non-linux systems both now and in
the forseeable future. ;-)

Of course, this is tricky for some gray areas such as C's
extensible ctype mechanisim and ANSI C functions that directly
benifict from unicode awareness as you suggest for printf.
